These Pulled Pork Tacos are a symphony of exotic and spectacular Asian flavor and texture in each can’t stop eating bite!
Crazy delicious Pulled Pork Tacos stuffed with juicy, tender Asian Caramel Pulled Pork smothered in delectable savory, sweet and spicy sauce and piled with fresh and tangy Pineapple Snow Pea Salsa and luxurious Sriracha Crema. The Caramel Pork is easy to make in the slow cooker (already with rave reviews) and the Salsa and Crema can be made ahead of time for a dinner that comes together quickly when it’s “go” time! Asian fusion never tasted so good.
Pulled Pork Tacos
Asian fusion is one of my favorite cuisines from my Thai Chicken Tacos (terrible pics but SO good!), Teriyaki Chicken Tacos, Korean BBQ Burgers, Sweet Chili Chicken Enchiladas, Taco Spaghetti, Red Curry Beef Tacos, Thai Chicken Pizza, Asian Burgers, Salsa Verde Mac and Cheese , Korean Tacos and on and on! So when I first made my Slow Cooker Asian Caramel Pulled Pork (already with rave reviews), I immediately knew it would be fabulous Pulled Pork Tacos.
The Pulled Pork
The Caramel Pulled Pork is the star of these Pulled Pork Tacos and is stand alone delicious – thus it’s own recipe – bathed in a multi-dimensional sauce infused with coconut milk, soy sauce, sweet chili sauce, fish sauce, sriracha, ginger and garlic. It’s luxuriously silky, savory, tangy and zingy, with a splash of heat.
How To Make Pulled Pork Tacos
- The Pulled Pork itself is rubbed with spices and seared for maximum flavor and tenderness and then bathed in the dump-and-run-sauce.
- Next, let the pulled pork cruise on LOW for 8 to 10 hours or on HIGH for 5-6 hours OR until pork is fall apart tender while the aroma permeates every nook and cranny of your home and reminds you what deliciousness awaits. As with all meats, if it’s not easy to shred with a fork, it just needs to cook longer. The key to crazy tender meat is the cooking time.
Pulled Pork Taco Toppings
While the Pulled Pork is stand-alone-delicious it becomes exponentially more delicious when piled with Pineapple Snow Pea Salsa and silky Sriracha Crema all cocooned in a tortilla. The refreshing sweet tang of the crunchy Pineapple Snow Pea Salsa against the rich caramelized pork is a match made in in ying and yang heaven. Because after all, the best thing about tacos is layering them with flavors and textures so you have mouthfuls of savory, sweet, tangy, fresh, creamy, crunchy all in one mouthful.
The Pineapple Snow Pea Salsa is a quick tossing together of fresh pineapple, snow peas, red bell pepper, jalapeno, red onion, cilantro and lime juice – so fresh and bright and so ready to be piled on your Asian Pulled Pork Tacos!
The Sriracha Crema is a quick whisking of sour cream, mayo and Sriracha. You can completely customize the heat on the Sriracha Crema from a hint of spice to blow-the-roof-off spice – totally up to you!
You can make both your Pineapple Snow Pea Salsa and your Sriracha Crema while your pork is tenderizing. which I love because not only does it make dinner time easy, they actually tastes better this way!
Now pile your tortilla with Caramel Pulled Pork, Pineapple Snow Pea Salsa and your Sriracha Crema and prepare yourself for the best Pulled Pork Tacos of. your. life.
